Right now
There's a moan about to make
Right now
There's a bone about to break
Don't lie down
Birds of prey say,
"Nah nah nah nah"
Sing loud,
Or forever hold your pace

Right now
There's a run that lost the race
Right now
There's a pun who's copping the case
Brace the sound
Of your weight and your fate
As you fall into hollowed ground
Breathe out
Forever comes today

Fee fo fum fi
Too late to rise
Too early to die
Fee fo fum and fi
Why, oh why?
Oh my
Fee fo fum fi
Too late to rise to early to die
Fee fo fum and fi
Oh, why?

Why, oh, why?
